Hospital Radio Ipswich is very fortunate to be allowed to broadcast “live” commentary of every Home match at Portman Road.
We have our own team on site at the games who sit with their professional counterparts in the commentary box. Their coverage is relayed from Portman Road back to our studio at Heath Road Hospital where it is then transmitted to the bedside Hospedia sets. A HRI member controls the sound in the studio at Heath Road and stands by should there be a break in the connection (this is job is normally carried out by Gemma G).
We thought it would be fun for you to see some behind the scenes pictures of the team in action at the Middlesborough game on 11th Feb – a very cold day!
